OneUnited Bank, a Black-owned bank, is facing backlash after making Harriet Tubman available on a Visa card. The limited-edition card, which includes an image of the iconic freedom fighter, caught the internet's attention for all the wrong reasons. 

For one thing, people, including The Kid Mero are wondering why Tubman is doing the Wakanda salute.

OneUnited Bank describes itself as America's largest Black-owned bank. But people are wondering if the bank included input from any Black people when making the card.




People also found the card ironic.


The bank has also advocated for Tubman to be on the $20 bill. But people took the opportunity to remind the executives  about Tubman's fight against American capitalism

Another person wants to know how the bank plans to give back.

The bank responded to the backlash in a separate tweet.

“Harriet Tubman is the ultimate symbol of love - love that causes you to sacrifice everything, including your own life,” OneUnited said. “The gesture is the sign language symbol for love. It's so important that we love ourselves.”

In addition to establishing her legacy as "conductor" of the the Underground Railroad, Tubman also helped the Union Army during the war and helped impoverished former slaves, according to Biography.
